Directed Trust Fees

A trust in which the grantor/settlor has written into the trust document who the specific financial advisor(s) shall be, whereby the financial advisor(s) retains 100% of the investment fiduciary risk and the corporate trustee retains 0% of the investment fiduciary risk.

Delegated Trust Fees

90% of trusts in existence today (2023) follow this type. The corporate trustee delegates the investment authority (e.g buy/sells, custody decisions, re-balancing, investment policy statement, etc.) to an independent financial advisor. 

However, since the corporate trustee makes the decision to delegate the investment authority, the investment fiduciary risk is equally shared by the financial advisor and the corporate trustee.

ILIT Trustee Fees

An irrevocable life insurance trust (also known as ILIT) allows for life insurance proceeds to be owned by a trust and to remove the life insurance proceeds from the grantor's estate, protecting the assets when the grantor passes away.
